Well I'm onto images now but the tutorial I'm using seems to be good but I can't understand the input process. And I know you guys are great at this stuff so thought you might lend a hand here to get me up and started. The code the guy in the tutorial is using goes like this.
import os, sys import Image for infile in sys.argv[1:]: f, e = os.path.splitext(infile) outfile = f + ".jpg" if infile != outfile: try: Image.open(infile).save(outfile) except IOError: print "cannot convert", infile
So anyway just started messing around with it and I'm not getting any information into sys.argv[1:] using similar code, I commented out the ones I still wanna learn but won't use for now. It looks like this.
import os, sys import Image im = Image.open("D:\\pics\\jennifer.bmp") #print im.format, im.size, im.mode #im.show() for im in sys.argv[1:]: f, e = os.path.splitext(im) outfile = f + ".jpg" if im != outfile: try: Image.open(im).save(outfile) except IOError: print "cannot convert", im
I guess its supposed to convert from one file type to another, but don't seem to be getting any information to the sys.argv[1:] module. So I guess my question is how does that work, and how can I get this up and running to test it?
